This isn’t a Men’s Health advert it’s the front cover of our Sculpture sale catalogue. So I think I can get away with it. The torso is enormous, late 18th century, and weighs 1500kg so took quite an effort to set up (swipe 👉 to see). The view opens to the public over the weekend so if anyone wants a free coffee and to see some great art including Rembrandt, El Greco, and Polyphemus here, come and visit me in Christie’s in St James’s
The human spine is segmented in 3 parts –
Cervical Spine (neck), Thoracic Spine (ribcage) and the lumbar spine (all the way down to the booty).
99,9% of all disc prolapses (Bandscheibenvorfälle) happen in the neck and the lumbar area.. Hm.. But why?
Well, mostly, because the torso is not doing is job. It’s stiff, rusted and very challanging to trigger conciously.
Which is freaking ironic- because after the neck, the thoracic spine is designed to have the widest range of motion.
You may end up having the same thought now as I did when i learned all that –
well.. as it was for me -
when you experience the difference of a more mobile torso,
the scales are most likely to fall from your eyes.
The ribbs will awake.
The breathing gets easier.
The stance gets more stable.
The lumbar & neck will be relieved.
V I T A L organs have more space to operate.
Etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc .

üüüh sweet, what a perfect occasion to talk about Y O G A and its benefits as I understand them-
Because - surprise- when obeyed biomechanical principles and responsably practised,
this ancient tradition has some very rad tools to revive your torso
& and S O much more.
hoppi, hoppi on the mat.
open up those torsos.
free your ribcaged ❤️s.
motion = L O T I O N.
but – s a f e t y first.
backbend = not
